We stayed for 2 months at Wild Olive Guest House in the Cottage. The staff were kind and helpful in every way. The Cottage delightful, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Clean towels & sheets at frequent intervals Breakfasts were delicious & plentiful, plenty of choice, individually cooked for each guest. Highly recommended in every way.

Very impressive guest house in Newlands! Nice and clean. Friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Wifi and flat screen TV. Lovely old Cape house with wooden floors which gives you that home away from home feel. All in all we highly recommend Wild Olive guest house which has now become our little home for when we visit CT again!

Thoroughly enjoyed my 2-night stay with agreeable facilities at the guest house. Excellent breakfasts with friendly staff in attendance. Was able to walk to the Newlands rugby stadium. Found the secure parking a bit tight.

Our room was not soundproof. Could hear other people talking in their room. We are an elderly couple and were given an upstairs room - had to lug two big suitcases up and down the stairs. Also could smell food from the kitchen downstairs.

Dear Guest, We are very concerned that you were not satisfied with your stay at our house. We have many elderly people visiting, most of them are returning guests and staying for several weeks a year. Of course they prefer our rooms at ground level. We have 2 of them, even accessible by wheel chair, a third one will be... More

Nice relaxing B&B. Very friendly owners. Loved the breakfast menu and looking forward to going back to this cosy cottage for those heavenly crepes again. The rooms are all air conditioned and good clean bathroom facilities. A clean pool and perfect outdoor areas to rest and read a book.

The accommodation was excellent - the room was clean and spacious, the bed firm and the bathroom had both a bath and a shower. The breakfast offered a wide selection of good food. The staff and management were very friendly, without being over the top.

Against to all my expectation this small cosy hotel gave me pleasurable home atmosphere for two whole weeks. To start with a beautiful garden with mysterious corners in which one can draw back and take rest in peace and contemplation, surrounded by high bushes and exotic flowers. Everything in the hotel was somehow disciplined and arranged so that you are... More

My stay at Wild Olive Guest House was superb for a few reasons. My room was large, lots of cupboard space, and well equipped. The room was clean, and the bed and linen really comfortable. The owners were extremely accomodating as my plans were uncertain, and they were very kind and understanding. The breakfast is good, as well as the... More

We recently stayed at Wild Olive Guest House in Cape Town and we received the most special kindness and consideration due to our health issues. The owners could not have been more accommodating. They went out of their way to help us. Over and above their kindness, the Guest House was super - we will be back and will recommend... More
